If I could give zero stars I would. Their policy holder, Mrs. Park hit ME coming into a parking garage on the wrong side of the road, facing outgoing traffic and hit my car. AMANDA **** (************************ ************) my insurance adjuster through them has not returned a single voicemail 8 of them since DECEMBER 21st...it is now January 9th. HER supervisor, KATHY ******** ************ has not returned two voicemails I have left over the past week. As of today I have reached out to KATHY's supervisor DEB ******* ************, whose voicemail says she is out until january 2nd, so clearly this woman cannot even update her voicemail...I have left HER a voicemail and called three times. As of today I have also reached out to KATHY's supervisor BoB ***** at ext ***** (you can get to the main number by pressing 0 during the voicemail recordings of any of the people above, then enter this extension). I've left him a voicemail as well. It is OVERTLY evident that these people (aside from Bob so far) are BUMPING MY CALLS TO VOICEMAIL, as you can tell because of the call going to voicemail immediately, then after two rings, then 4, then normally, as I have attempted to be irritating at this point and called 8+ times back to back to Amanda's number to test this...in which case I found she was bumping me to voicemail repeatedly, as was Kathy and Deb. THIS is the WORST insurance company if one of their policy holder's hits you. I will be pursuing legal recourse if I do not hear back from them soon. I would NOT BE SURPRISED if this is some FLY BY NIGHT INSURANCE COMPANY THAT IS FAKE AND DISAPPEARS A FEW TIMES A YEAR, RENAMING ITSELF TO A NEW COMPANY NAME EACH TIME. ALL I WANT IS A FREAKING STATUS UPDATE ON MY CLAIM AGAIN THEIR POLICY HOLDER WHO CANT FIGURE OUT HOW TO DRIVE ON THE CORRECT SIDE OF THE ROAD. AT LEAST LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE DENYING THE CLAIM SO I CAN TAKE HER TO COURT AND EASILY GET PAID THE LESS THAN $300 IN DAMAGE SHE CAUSED TO MY CAR. NO I WILL NOT USE MY INSURANCE TO PAY FOR THIS, TELL YOUR DRIVER TO LEARN WHICH SIDE OF THE ROAD TO DRIVE ON. I HOPE SHE CANCELS HER POLICY WITH YOU AFTER THE PROBLEMS YOU ARE GOING TO BRING UPON HER BECAUSE OF YOUR LACK OF RESPONSE. #FAKEINSURANCECOMPANY

I've really only dealt with them via an insurance agent.

This is absolutely the worst insurance company on the planet. I am dealing with a Charlene ********* there and she is very unpleasant. I deal with insurance companies on a daily basis as a paralegal and this is by far the most incompetent insurance company out there. An insurance adjuster that thinks she needs to put acronyms by her name to make her sound more important does nothing for me. You would be better off with any other insurance company than this.

On 06/27/2017 my business was damage due to fire. As of 04/12/2018 each represenative with this company has failed to pay loss earnings for my business or the rent at the temporary location due to displacement. I have supplied all requested documents even Bank Statements to their Forensic Accountant. I'm using / depleting my savings to met the course of remaining open. The reimbursment the rental fees are late or don't arrived at all. Not the company for anyone, they don't reply to social media also tags.

This company is terrible. I set up electronic funds transfer with them and it comes out on a different date each month rather than on a certain date. I have never heard of etf that didn't come out on a certain date. I don't want to do math in order to figure out what date my bill is coming out. I talked to a girl named cindy in customer service to try to rectify it and she was arrogant and unhelpful not listening to me and always talking over me before I could get a sentence out. It got to the point where I had to say to her are you listening to me or are you just a recording. They obviously have many calls to this end because it seemed like she knew what I was going to say. I finally said to her, after numerous pleas for her to listen to me, I will be finding a new insurance company that will listen to me that actually knows what customer service means. don't waste your time with this company.

We are only switching the Avalanche. My husband is a Florida resident and is registering it in Florida so we need different insurance.

Run, don’t walk away from this company. The person that I dealt with in the claims department was rude, demeaning and accusatory. I am a professional with high moral standards and was astonished at the blatant disrespect within this department. They denied my claim for reasons that I totally did not agree with so I filed a claim with the Massachusetts insurance commissioner and they ruled in my favor. Point made!

I was hit by a deer and my car was totaled. When my car was appraised, it came in at 1000 dollars less than both Kelley Blue Book and Edmund's prices. I sent them examples of used cars in my area that were more expensive (even when you added the higher mileage penalty) and they still wouldn't budge on their offer. Their customer service response is very slow- an average of 4-5 days per email. No explanation of why the large difference in price. Now they tell me (after 45 days waiting) that I can go to an arbitrator, (at my cost.) The cost to me would be more than the difference in our price. I do not believe that they are a treating me fairly or honestly.

Methodology

The car insurance quotes displayed are based on an analysis of Insurify’s database of over 40 million quotes from 500 ZIP codes nationwide. To obtain representative rates, Insurify’s data science team performs frequent comprehensive analyses of the factors car insurance providers weigh to calculate rates including driver demographics, driving record, credit score, desired coverage level, and more.

Insurify’s analysis also incorporates the Insurify Composite Score (ICS) assigned to each insurance provider. The ICS is a proprietary rating that weighs multiple factors reflecting the quality, reliability, and health of an insurance company. Ratings used to calculate the ICS include Financial Strength Ratings from A.M. Best, Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch; J.D. Power ratings; Consumer Reports customer satisfaction surveys and customer complaints; mobile app reviews; and user-generated company reviews. 

With the above insights and ranking methods, Insurify is able to offer car insurance shoppers insight into how various insurance providers compare to one another in terms of both cost and quality. Note, actual quotes will vary based on unique attributes including the policyholder’s driver history and their garaging address.
